A Tribute To Robert Ashley

 

One of the most original minds in new music, Robert Ashley reinvented opera and the relationship of words and music. Thomas Buckner will perform some of the many works composed especially for him to sing in a concert setting during the more than thirty years he sang in the operas. He is joined by Tom Hamilton (electronics), Joseph Kubera (piano/voice), Pauline Kim Harris, Conrad Harris (voice), Stephen Gosling, Ines Thiebaut (synthesizers), Marianne Gythfeldt, (clarinet), JD Parran (bass clarinet), Tom Verchot (trumpet), Chris Nappi (timpani), and Petr Kotik (conductor). Roulette TV will present parts of an interview with Robert Ashley at the beginning of the concert. Please come and celebrate the life and work of this most deeply human composer. This event is co-sponsored by Roulette and Performing Artservices.
